The contradictions of the US foreign policy during the Iraqi crisis

During the Iraqi crisis, the contradictions of the American diplomacy were numerous, obvious and increasing. The various doctrines (Rogue States, preventive war…) presented a low level or argumentation. Above all, the Iraqi threat was so exaggerated that US weakened both the UN and NATO and paradoxically favored dissensions and disputes between allies (including Turkey) and reinforced anti-Americanism in the world. Unfortunately, the evolution of the political situation in Iraq after the war confirmed this analysis. – Summary AFRI-2004
